Kelechi Nwakali has starred in the most surreal farewell that is remembered from the Huesca Sports Society. 24 hours after the club announced the termination of the Nigerian footballer’s contract, the player has written a letter on his social networks in English and Spanish breaking his silence and speaking of pressure, intimidation and abuse. “If you go to the African Cup you will not play with Huesca again” or “sign this contract and we will pay you” These are two of the statements made by the Nigerian international.
The player delayed his return from the African Cup (in more than a week) and that act was classified as indiscipline by Huesca, who made use of their internal code. The 23-year-old footballer apologizes saying that he had suffered a “respiratory infection”. The player had already been delayed on other occasions and the Huesca entity chose to seek accommodation for him in the Burgosan operation that was not closed. Nwakali says they threatened him, saying “that they wouldn’t pay me if I didn’t go to another club.”
On Huesca He has not returned to exercise with his teammates and has resorted to the AFE to try to solve his situation. According to the player, the Huesca entity tried to force their agreed exit: “A member of the club tried to force me to sign mutual termination papers”. These are some of the harsh accusations that the player has made on his Instagram and Twitter accounts.
AFE will challenge the dismissal of Kelechi Nwakali
The Association of Spanish Soccer Players (AFE) will challenge the dismissal of Nigerian player Kelechi Nwakali by Huesca, considering that the unilateral resolution adopted by the club has clearly violated the footballer’s labor rights.
The union said on Tuesday that “Since it became clear that this situation was causing the affected person enormous helplessness, he made himself available to Kelechi Nwakali, advising him and defending his legitimate interests”.
“Given the numerous information that is appearing, some erroneous, AFE wants to clarify that the dismissal will be challenged -as it cannot be otherwise- before the courts of the city of Huesca with the aim of continuing to safeguard the footballer’s labor rights,” he said in a statement.
